We all want great skin.
A healthy glow, natural radiance and spot-free skin is something the most talented of make-up artists struggle to achieve. Maintaining beautiful skin is even harder considering just how many things can effect it; cold weather, harsh soaps and ‘chemical’ cleaners can leave you feeling dull and dry. If your skin rebels whenever you change a single part of your routine; from washing powder to moistiuriser chances are, you’re suffering from sensitive skin.
So how can you boost your beauty the natural way? Here at myvitamins, we take a peek at the top 5 ways to rescue dry skin.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
We know, we know, we’ve said it a million times before but gulping down 2-4 liters of H20 every day can help your body in hundreds of different ways, including helping reduce inflammation and blemishes.
Keeping your water levels topped up prevents your skin from dehydrating, the main cause of premature aging. If you find it hard to reach your target each day, try sipping on mint tea or invest in a water infuser for a top tipple with a healthy twist.
Wipe away the day
We’ve all been there; falling asleep after a night on the town with a full face of make up might not seem like the end of the world; but you could actually be doing more harm to your skin than you think. Over-wearing make up can increase exposure to free radicals, leading to collagen breakdown and the loss of skin elasticity.
Neutral 0% Face Wipes are formulated especially for sensitive skin and are gentle on the face. Remove every last trace of make-up easily and from the comfort of your bed before drifting off to wake up feeling cleansed and refreshed. You’ll thank yourself later…
Perfect a routine
A skincare ‘routine’ might seem like an intimidating prospect at first, but once you’ve get into the groove you’ll be glad you started early. At a minimum you’ll need to cleanse, tone and moisturise, plus a gentle exfoliate once a week to remove the top layer of dead skin.
Neutral’s Sensitive Skin Face Tonic contains a gentle formula that has been specially developed for sensitive skin types, so you can avoid blemishes and redness after washing your face. Simply apply to a cotton pad after washing your face and massage over your face and neck for clean and radiant looking skin.
You are what you eat
Beautiful skin starts from within so make sure you are nourishing your body from the inside with a healthy, balanced diet. Essential micronutrients from your diet play an important role in the rejuvenation and regeneration of skin cells, vital for healthy looking skin.
Supplementing with, or eating foods rich in vitamin C, selenium and vitamin E such as sweet potatoes, avocado, blueberries, broccoli and brazil nuts support the healthy function of cell growth and can also protect your skin against sun damage and collagen depletion.
